CID changed

Hi,
My backup starts every day a full backup:
The system disk CID has changed, OneDiff backup will be initialized and a full backup made...

So what is the CID and can I change them
or why this CID changes?

Grettings,
Nils

Re: CID changed

You see that message when some remote replica performed via --backup-prog=Onediff is switched on. When you do so, you modify the seed that the Onediff differential algorithm created on the previous run and a new full replica must be completed to ensure that both ends are identical.

To avoid that from happening and allow Onediff to just add the instant differential data, just don't switch on the remote end replica in between Onediff cycles.

Re: CID changed

Hi,
i think the problem is, that after the backup there is no XSIBAK found in the web-backend.
But the backup finished without any errors.
(An other VM with same folder works fine and created the XSIBAK entry in the web-backend)
How could I create the XSIBAK entry?

Re: CID changed

You don't have any_XSIBAK VM as the above is a first full backup.
